Guilty plea­sure: Favourite school lunch: Who in­spires you?

My fa­ther, who sadly passed away on Box­ing Day in 2013, but who’s mem­ory still in­spires me daily in terms of how he lived his life and also by his an­noy­ing abil­ity to do the Tele­graph crossword in the time it took him to eat a bowl of Corn­flakes!

Cricket is some­thing of an ob­ses­sion with me. I also love rugby and golf. The for­mer I watch, the lat­ter I play really, really badly

What do you do in the hol­i­days?

We have a hol­i­day apart­ment on the Black Sea coast in Bul­garia which we visit. Once there, it is books, lazy days and good food.
